To provide the best possible service for the collection of your yard waste, please use the following guidelines. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact customer service.
Yard Waste Route Service begins at 7:00 a.m. Route times vary depending on time of year and number of trucks on the route. Always have out by 7:00 am and easily accessible from the street. If items are blocked by cars or other materials, they may not be collected. Please keep yard waste bags separate from trash and recycling carts so they are easy to view and are not damaged by collection equipment.
Collection Limit – 20 items per date. Additional bags will be picked up if you have an over limit sticker or have contacted the office to arrange for additional payment of $1.25 per bag.
Paper Bags or Bundles Only. Bundles should be 18” x 36” and double tied with rope.
o We only pick up natural yard waste including grass, leaves, tree limbs, flower or garden plants
(without their pots), walnuts, apples, Christmas trees, etc.
o Please tie brush securely with rope or twine – not wire. Mark bundles of thorns for the driver’s
o Christmas Trees are the only items that do not require bagging or bundling. We will accept
Christmas trees up to 6’ in length, if larger please cut in half.
o Small cardboard boxes may be used provided they are no larger than the size and weight limits.
We suggest boxes for fruits, small brush, wood or items that would easily break a bag during removal.
Maximum item weight is 50 pounds. Do not use plastic tape on paper bags since it is not biodegradable. Please fold down the tops of bags.
All materials collected are taken to a licensed compost facility. This recycling facility does not allow for ANY trash, landscape, or construction materials. If bags contain trash or foreign materials, they will have to be left at the curb. Any plastic inside your bag will be considered trash and not picked up. We do NOT collect animal waste.
We appreciate your business and look forward to working with you.
